For the greatest fun under the sun, you can’t beat a day at tiny, unihabited South Sea Island. This gorgeous wee slice of paradise is only 30 minutes from Denarau and offers a fantastic array of things to see and do.
Gorgeous little South Sea Island is one of the treasures of the Mamanuca Islands. Crystal clear waters, coral reefs and thousands of colourful tropical fish surround the tiny island.

South Sea Cruises offer a range of day trip options to South Sea Island. Being an easy 30 minute ferry ride from Denarau Marina, you can make the most of a full day lazing on the beach, snorkelling, diving and enjoying the myriad of activities on offer.

It may be small in size, but there is plenty to keep you entertained. The hardest part is choosing what to do first! There is a salt water swimming pool and non-motorised water sports equipment available free of charge, including kayaking and sailing.

Discover the underwater world with hours of snorkelling or if you want to stay dry, jump onboard the semi-submersible coral viewer. Although the island is uninhabited, you can still get a taste of Fijian culture with a traditional Meke performance and craft market Monday to Saturday.

South Sea is a great place to learn to dive. Expert instructors and clear, shallow water ensures your first dives will be memorable. The marine life and coral you’ll see will amaze you and if you’re up for it, you can take a dive on out to a wreck.

Lunchtime is a highlight on the island. Everyone gathers around rustic tables at the open-air restaurant to watch Fijian performances and enjoy a delicious buffet lunch with salads, beer, wine and soft drinks.
